Dr. Poletes is the absolute best! After my double mastectomy, Dr. Poletes did an absolute wonderful and professional removal of additional breast tissue, referred to as, "dogs ears"! I have shared my experience with everyone that I have come in contact with because of the excellency of his career. I even offered to have photos taken of before and after to share with other cancer patients and the public. My experience was through his private practice on Michigan.

I had a great experience with Dr Poletes. My breast reduction turned out excellent. My outcome couldn't have been better. Dr Poletes takes extreme pride in his work and is truly an artist. His entire staff was very nice and helpful.

I could not be happier and more content with the outcome of my cosmetic surgery, performed by Dr. Poletes. He is a great doctor, and an unbelievably skilled surgeon. He removed three moles from my face. One large one on my cheek, and two smaller ones. I had my stitches removed TWO days ago, and there is almost no sign of scarring. There is redness like a rash, but that's it. Unbelievable. Not sure if this result is typical, but I give all the credit to Dr. P! Cannot recommend him enough

He was very informative on what to expect during and after my surgery. Procedure went well. all of my appointments were able to be scheduled quickly and sometimes last minute. I have complete trust in his abilities and would see him again.
